What I did like about the old design that I don't like here, is having to start on the first post of a thread.
Before, when I clicked on a thread it would take me to the last post that I had seen.
Is that going to be looked at?

It may have been asked and answered already. I didn't look before posting.

It was asked and answered. Thanks Face and Zuga!!

Looks good so far! My compliments to whoever did this upgrade. I will certainly report any bugs if I find any.

I don't like the nonsense on the right hand side.

Other than that, looks cool.



Few suggestions if possible.

1) I know it doesn't have to do with the new forum layout or whatever, but should be a regular checkbox thing in the admin CP....but can someone enable Quick Post? So you don't gotta hit "Reply" in order to respond. There'd automatically be a box at the bottom of the screen to type in a response.

2) Hotkeys. I forget what they are, but I think Alt+S for post and Alt+P for preview.

DJTeddy here it is


That menu doesn't appear on my iPhone.

Also, the preview function doesn't work...on my iPhone.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition.

I was just going to say the same. Clicking on a thread should take you to the newest post you have not read.

Would be awesome to have a "View Recent Threads" link at the top somewhere. I hate navigating to /forums then having to click onto recent threads button.

One thing I noticed on the main page is that I no longer see a distinction between threads I have read and threads that have new content since I last read them. The unread thread titles used to be in bold, whereas the thread titles I have read were in standard typeface.

This made it easy to see which threads had new content at a glance. Is there any way to restore that functionality?

Oh, and when I preview a reply, my reply shows as belonging to the user I am replying to, not me. It also has an unknown (to me anyway) picture of somebody as the avatar.
